Background history:

'Fashion Rings' is a evergreen tetraploid introduced in 2014 by Bill Maryott. Bill and Marion do their hybridizing in Freedom, California:

Fashion Rings is an early to mid-season bloomer with possible re-bloom. This plant can be found in the NGA Plant Database at: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Fashion Rings') .

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.

Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the NGA Plant Database! Thank you!

I started Fashion Rings mid-July as a bonus from Maryott's. It was one of the few Maryott plantings that didn't bloom in its maiden-season, but it grew like a champion and looks like it will be a winner next year...if it makes it through the winter, of course. So 'Fashion Rings' is a slow but possible champion for me!

I got this one from Maryott's this year, and it's a good thing I did (with Bill's retirement from their business) I love the edge on it and the ruffles. I took a risk on buying an evergreen daylily (it was so beautiful, I couldn't be helped) in my climate but I mulched it in good and with a nice blanket of snow now, hopefully it will remain the strong grower for me next year as it was this year. High bud count and prolonged bloom.

Fashion Rings was a bonus from my Maryott's order in September 2015, so this was the first year blooming in my garden. It did as well as expected for a first year plant and I know it will get taller.

As a 2014 registration and new to my garden, it is difficult to give a good evaluation, but it had the two way branching as listed in the database. I didn't get near the bud count of 21-25, but expect that to improve. The colors are vivid and it has a nice wide red edge.

First bloom was on 6-10-16 and that scape put up about 8-10 blooms until the end of June. Then another scape started blooming on 7-26-16 and it bloomed until 8-6-16. So it does rebloom. Will have to see if I get rebloom next year.

No rust observed, but I believe Maryott's had a rust spraying program, so that probably protected it this year. Hopefully, it is not prone to rust anyway.

We had a mild winter 2015-2016 here in zone 6b, so as an evergreen, it survived. It will be interesting to see how the evergreen daylilies do after the winter of 2016-2017. We've already been plunged into a deep freeze and I'm not sure when we will come out of it.

Got FR as a gift from Maryott's in October. Settled in well and has nice growth so far this season. The mild winter probably helped. Can't wait to see it bloom!
